I purchased these for my Birthday Luau and they were a wonderful addition. I love the length of the picks and the idea of silk flowers on the tops. A nice assortment. The kids especially loved them. My only disappointment was that the flowers were not perky like they are shown in the picture, because they are stuffed into a box that is perhaps a little too small for the whole lot. I wish I had read the tip about steaming them ahead of time. I am sure this would have resolved this small disappointment. The quantity was way more than I needed for my small party, so it would be nice if this was also offered in a smaller quantity.

We used these picks for our fresh fruit and veggie platters at our at-home-reception. Our party was luau themed, but we definitely did not want to go the cheesy route and it is hard to distinguish that fine line with this theme. These picks added color and that extra "pop" the appetizers needed. You can't go wrong with the price, either! Highly recommend, A+!

I used these pics for my chocolate fountain. I thought they might be a little short for this purpose but they worked great!

VERY VERY NICE-A WINNER!!!
We hosted a international fair for our church's missions conference. I served these as fresh fruit kabobs. Couldn't make them fast enough - went very fast and presentation was a huge plus. Our booth won. Kudos to those who posted about steaming the flowers. I did the whole batch in less than 5 minutes and it made an amazing difference - the flowers almost bloomed in front of my eyes. They were so pretty it was hard to part with them. I was very happy with my purchase. They were very colorful and good variety.

Not what I expected
These were much bigger than I thought they would be. I was disappointed when I opened up the box. Not what I was expecting. Will try and cut the stakes in half.

Nicer than expected
These hibiscus picks were nicer than I had expected. They did arrive compressed and needed to be fluffed up in order to resemble the photo. They were also the perfect size.

Wish they weren't so smooshed in packaging and few flowers fell of when separating. This need a taller type glass if using them for drinks our shorter plastic cups didn't work so well....

Great for shower!
I bought these to hold the cut pieces of a 6 ft. sub sandwich together for a bridal shower. They worked beautifully and looked so pretty for the tropical themed shower.

these were great at a my luau party with a chocolate fountain. Not as long as traditional bamboo skewers but worked just as well. The flowers were brightly colored and were higher quality than I anticipated.
